    Chef Johnny Ringo's Note:

    Anyone who grew up in Utah will remember buying these Cookies at ZCMI...they were the BEST cookies, but ever since ZCMI was bought by Macy's they haven't been available. This recipe was posted in the August 13th 2008 Salt Lake Tribune and I thought I'd post it here for anyone else who remembers these wonderful cookies!

      My family loved this cookie! The recipe is easy to use. I doubled the amount of raisin filling in each cookie and gently pressed the top cookie layer over the filling. The cookies really do increase in size, so give plenty of room when placing on baking sheet. Make lots because they disappear quickly!

      Oh I'm so glad I came upon this recipe. I knew I would like it immensely as I also love datefilled cookies. They remind me of when I was a kid and when my gramma would make these and the date filled. I made these especially for my dad as he love anything raisin and also mincemeat pie. They are superb. I cut the recipe in 1/2 as I really didn't need 48 cookies, although I did read your directions about being able to freeze them as well. These will make a lovely addition for holiday trays. Thanks for this keeper Johnny!!!
